Buying Cars Online
Though still in its infancy the online car market is growing rapidly, with increasing numbers of companies, including some very well-known household names, launching new web sites dealing in new and used cars.
Disillusioned by the failure of the UK motor industry to bring prices down to levels in the rest of the EU where cars cost considerably less, motorists are flocking to the Internet in search of bargains. It is estimated that this year the online car dealers will be responsible for 20% of all new and second hand car sales in the UK, rapidly catching up with the USA where this figure is now over 50%.
Promises of four-figure discounts on list prices for some new models and 20% off second hand prices make the Internet a tempting prospect, though these may not always be as good as they seem.
If you’re considering buying a new set of wheels for private or commercial use – you can even buy a fleet online – it’s well worth surfing the net and exploring the different web sites to find out what’s on offer.
